Mint Chocolate

Not only is plaid the go to pattern this season, but I didn’t realize how much I would love the mint and brown combination of it until I tried on this new dress from Tetra. It’s available in 15 colors at 288L$ each , or you can buy the plaid pack with 10 options for 688$L. Each version also includes a transparency option for up to 20%.

I haven’t worn my Simone bento head in quite some time, until Glam Affair released Aradia, for Access. I tried her on my usual Greer and though she still looks lovely, I have to admit that Simone really is a perfect fit. While she was never my first choice before now (the base lip shape just didn’t do it for me,) I will definitely be wearing this head/skin combination more often! I mean, look at those lips!

What are some of your favorite mesh head/skin combinations? I’d love to see them!

Love Cara

Live Fast, Live Hard

The Arcade has rolled out all sorts of new releases for September! I am even more excited that there are a lot of wearables this round, as well as a good mix of Summer and the soon-to-be Fall gachas.

The title of my post so perfectly describes my RL lately, extremely busy, but you’ll see lots more posts coming soon! On top of that, Hurricane season is upon us and while we’ve been lucky here in Florida so far, I hope all of you on the East Coast stay safe! <3

Welcome to the Jungle

Living in Florida, one kind of has to enjoy the tropical side of things. For me, it’s all encompassing. Tropical, jungle, beachy, you name it. The colors, the vibe and the feeling of relaxation I get when I’m surrounded by the nature of it all. Even my homes in both worlds are tropical inspired!

With that being said, it’s the 7th anniversary of Collabor88 and I am completed tickled by the ‘Rainforest’ theme of this round. With extra designers to celebrate, I found tons of gorgeous new pieces for my already overloaded SL inventory.

Osmia has released a sexy summer bikini with optional on/off sleeves and the top provides the perfect pairing to the shorts from Belle Epoque. Tropical rings from Astralia and my headpiece from LaGyo are a match made for the islands and added the perfect pop of red against all of this lush greenery.

I am also loving all of the new releases from Glam Affair. ‘Apple’ is available in the mainstore, and the fierce and thick brows are a statement all on their own.

Bohemian Beauty

Mamma Mia

The new Katty pants and top from Addams SO reminds me of the bohemian style in Mamma Mia, and since I seriously just watched it the other day, I was already channeling the feels for this fun, summery vibe. I definitely cannot wait to go and see the sequel.

I am in love with the patterns for these pants, which are available in a pack for L$650. You can also purchase a separate ombre pack, or full fatpack for the almost standard L$1299. The top also comes in glitter and ombre options, or fatpack as well, for a total of 66 colors. The laces and belt can also be changed via HUD.

I was at a toss up between the headband from Miss Chelsea and this sunhat from American Bazaar and actually wore both with this outfit for a few days before I finally settled on the hat. What a statement it makes! You can also grab a few birthday gifts at the Epiphany, including a matching beach bag from American Bazaar.

Havana Nights

Havana

I’ve totally had some Latin fever going on this Summer. I was watching the second Dirty Dancing movie just the other day and of course the hit song by Camila Cabello has been lighting up every other station since it’s debut. I can’t seem to escape it.

So I’ve been looking for an outfit that could feed this Latin heat and of course, Tetra and Ison had to go and collaborate on this gorgeous new top and skirt combo. It definitely makes me want to get up and salsa.

In fact, I think it would be great to see a whole lot more collaboration from designers for well… Collabor88. Makes sense, no? I’d love to hear who you think should do a collaboration together!

Baja Summer

Osmia turns one this month and Hanna has an awesome 50% off sale going on at the mainstore from June 14th – June 21st. Check out all the deets here. While new releases don’t apply, it’s still totally worth it to pick up the new release ‘Summer Weekend’ set from the Arcade.

New VIP Truth hair is also out and packs a tropical punch with a super sleek mane and inspired flower. It’s definitely worth joining the group for the twelve exclusive releases each year.
